    from a "the nation" review

    .....García Bernal makes a sweet loverboy Guevara, whose principal traits in the movie are weak bronchial tubes and a charming awkwardness on the dance floor. Think, in other words, of a Che from the strung-out waif era of fashion photography. Serving as his foil, and little else, is Granado (Rodrigo de la Serna): a more robust type, outfitted with an old-style movie-star mustache, who is characterized in José Rivera's screenplay mostly by a venal horniness, until he awakens to his friend's spiritual superiority.....


    ....I'll let you in on a secret: Just as Dr. King was more than a fat man with a dream, Che was more than a longhair motivated by feelings of great love. He devoted much of his adult life to activities of the kill-or-be-killed variety. That, of course, is something that a culture of liberal self-congratulation would prefer not to contemplate. We'd rather get the T-shirt Che, only prettier. We don't know exactly what he'll do after The Motorcycle Diaries, but he sure is going to be famous.

    I want to see this movie

    Mainly, because I just never gave ten seconds thought as to who and what Che Guevara was before he was a revolutionary. I knew he was a medical doctor, and that he and Castro were pals in Mexico, but that was about it. It's like one day this young doctor woke up and said "Fuck this, I'm sick of being a doctor. I think I'll go join the Cuban Revolution, fight my way to the mountains with Fidel and wind up dead as a canned mackeral at the hands of the CIA in Bolivia. See ya."

    It's just too bad Castro had to decide to become a Communist. He and his party murdered thousands of anarchists and anarcho-syndicalist labor organizers once he took power in Cuba. Despite the fact that the libertarian labor movement firmly supported Castro's overturning Batista with a massive, unbreakable libertarian General Strike. Castro was impressed, but---if they can bring down Batista with their General Strike, they could bring down Castro too. So. Off to the Isle of Pines with anybody who even smelled vaguely like an anarchist or a libertarian.
